Document not reported for approval

I have an urgent issue related to workflow, it is like a lot of document that should report for approval, has not been reported since many days. Now when i am checking the log of the documents it is showing a SWW_WI_ERROR_MESSAGE_SEND_S in technical details of the agent list.

Can any one help me for the same?

    Check Transaction Code:SM58 and SM13 to find out what is the actual issue. It seems there is some problem with background task. Please check.

    Some more information is probably needed:

    - Is there an error message in the workflow?

    - What do you mean by "technical details of the <u>agent list</u>"?

    - Is the problem occurring for different types of documents, or only one type (or is there something else that seems to be common for the workflows that have errors)?

      So it is a background step. That is (well, at least it can be) significant information. Have you checked that they haven't messed with the authorizations of WF-BATCH?

      So the documents are of different types, it is not restricted to e.g. only purchase orders. Have you checked that the user has normal authorizations (e.g. the same basic roles as another user)?

      I assume you have chekced most of the obvious things, such as the document referred in the workflow actually existing.

      Surely the workflow must be triggering when this problem can be found in the workflow log. What exactly do you mean by that statement - do all the workflows fail early in the process - perhaps even before the first step is created?

      What should the step that fails do? I assume the failure occurs in a customer-developed BOR object type, so please give a bit more information about where the problem occurs.
